DAYVILLE — Westview recently broke ground to develop a new 7,000 square foot child care center dedicated to children of its employees. The construction project will involve the redevelopment of an existing building as well as 5,000 square feet of structural addition; slated for opening in June 2023.
Shaws & Associates, LLC of Moodus is the contractor.
The new Westview Child Care Center will be directly across the street from Westview Health Care Center and Country Living at Westview Commons
The Westview family of companies now offers employment opportunities for over 300 full-time, part-time, and per diem positions.
Westview’s objective is to promote a child care center that is affordably priced, youth-oriented, developmentally appropriate, educationally encouraging, health promoting, independently functional, and environmentally sensitive. The project will feature enhanced safety, security, and surveillance systems (i.e., parental monitoring), a large centrally-located multi-purpose area, and an outdoor recreation yard with unique and enriching scenescapes—including a pirate ship and medieval castle. Westview Child Care Center will include licensure for up to 80 children; ranging between daycare for infants and toddlers to after-school care for older children.
“We have developed an exciting and enriching plan for inter-generational activity here,” said David T. Panteleakos, Westview Health Care Center administrator.
This new, state-of-the-art child care center has been in development for several years and will provide quality child care on-site, offer expanded backup care, and customize flexible schedules to address the community’s critical child care needs. “Addressing child care is as much of a workplace challenge as it is a family challenge,” said Panteleakos. “We are truly committed to being an employer of choice, and we work to continually enhance our wage and benefit program for our outstanding employees. This significant $2 million investment is made with full confidence that our team at Westview can do amazing things when we support each other. In doing so, we aim to recruit and retain working parents by helping with the balance between family life and work.”
